git-update-server-info(1)
=========================
 
NAME
----
git-update-server-info - Update auxiliary info file to help dumb servers
 
 
SYNOPSIS
--------
'git-update-server-info' [--force]
 
DESCRIPTION
-----------
A dumb server that does not do on-the-fly pack generations must
have some auxiliary information files in $GIT_DIR/info and
$GIT_OBJECT_DIRECTORY/info directories to help clients discover
what references and packs the server has.  This command
generates such auxiliary files.
 
 
OPTIONS
-------
 
-f|--force::
	Update the info files from scratch.
 
 
OUTPUT
------
 
Currently the command updates the following files.  Please see
linkgit:gitrepository-layout[5][repository-layout] for description of
what they are for:
 
* objects/info/packs
 
* info/refs
 
 
BUGS
----
When you remove an existing ref, the command fails to update
info/refs file unless `--force` flag is given.
